back from hols

Cold but sunny, so a good week on North Norfolk coast. Missed Hattie tho; lots of dog walkers on the beach, no poo restrictions, a village full of dog walkers grinning behind their hats and scarves.

Having no doggy friend of our own we concentrated on staying upright in the wind looking for mermaid's purses and stones with holes in them.

Miles of sand and dunes, blue skies and flashing waves. The seals were gathered on the rocks as they were having thier babies and baby seals aren't water proof so mums and dads have to loll about in the sun waiting for them.

Village pub did huge meals with piles of chips, but

Fortunately all the beach combing seems to have kept the weight gain down to manageable proportions.

I'd love to visit Norfolk, sadly, him indoors says we're leaving 'the flat stuff' for much later, when we're too decrepit to get up on the hills. I'd settle for now, please. Plus hills as a nice 'side'.

And blue skies - aren't they magnificent?

So glad you had better weather than us. I thought of you, chilly and wind-blown. You are an intrepid pair.

Glorious seaside stretches. Me, I love walking on the flat. Can go for miles if there are no difficult bits.
